Professional Earwax Removal
A gentle and safe microsuction procedure conducted by qualified nurses.
Are your ears blocked?
Blocked ears can be frustrating and painful. Our team of qualified nurses use effective microsuction technology to clear wax and debris from your ear canals. This microsuction technique is the same ear cleaning method used by ENT specialists, GPs and Audiologists. It's safe, gentle and dry.
No referral is required.
What is Earwax?
Earwax, also known as cerumen, is not really wax. The name comes from its sticky waxy texture. Earwax is made of skin cells, sweat, dirt and a natural body oil called sebum.
Earwax is produced by the ears to clean and protect themselves. It helps trap dust and other particles that could damage deeper structures like your eardrum.
Earwax can be wet or dry. It can also be different colours depending on your environment, diet and how long it's been in your ear. It naturally works its way out of the ear.
Not enough earwax can lead to itchy ears. Too much can build up and cause blockage leading to problems with hearing, tinnitus, dizziness and earache. This is more common in people who wear hearing aids or use earbuds or ear plugs regularly. About 20% of the population simply produce too much earwax. This is when Clear Ears can help.
Why Cotton Buds are bad
It's tempting to use a cotton bud, paper clip or hair pin to try and remove wax from your ears, but please STOP!
Why? The problem is when you use cotton buds or other things to try and remove wax it disrupts the natural cleaning mechanism of the ear. Often you will end up pushing your earwax deeper in towards the more sensitive structures and create a bigger problem. You also run the risk of damaging the ear canal or eardrum which can lead to pain, infection and sometimes loss of hearing.
Cotton buds are not only bad for your ears, they are bad for our environment too. 1.5 billion single use plastic cotton buds are produced each day. They are one of the most problematic litter items found on beaches across the world.
Use a wax softener to help your earwax move to the outside and wipe away with a damp cloth. If you have problems, see a professional such as Clear Ears to remove your earwax safely and gently with microsuction.
Clear Ears Learning
Clear Ears developed the first Australian Course in Aural Care in 2011, based on the in house course run by the ENT unit at the Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Oxford in the UK.
Due to increasing international and national demand, in 2017 the Clear Ears Learning portal was created by leading blended digital learning experts at DeakinCo. This new fully online format enables practitioners to access training at a time and location convenient to their business. The portal minimises the costs associated with traditional training, whilst adding value by using spaced learning techniques allowing learners to review any aspect of the course as often as desired.
The Clear Ears Aural Care Course has been endorsed by industry leaders in the Medical, Nursing and Audiology fields.
